I did it to my 2005, took a little figuring out. I put in the hi and low hid kit, had to put capasitors on the high and low beam wires on the truck harness.

they are fricking awsome.

yep something i want to do to my 2000 as well but i haven't found a kit for a pricee im willing to pay yet either

Found a couple on ebay, not to bad of a price.

This ones just put it in to the factory harnes its about $140

This one is a complete new blacked out headlight assembly for a total of like $320

Id like the blacked out ones in my silver 01 but not sure if they would be that much brighter.

Did it on my 98 , cut the shit out of my hands putting blast in a good spot , but well worth it , can see again .

a friend of mine did a hid kit on a 08 mega cab and was having problems because the stock wiring wasnt putting out a constant 12 volts so the HID's would flicker on and off

the flicker is what mine did, that's why I put capasitors on them.

do you think the hi and low beam is worth it?

07-09-2009, 11:57 PM
High low beams on HID's dont do a whole lot i had them in my ranger. Low beams are bright enough, high beams just would change the light pattern and not so much the output. Coming out of stave on rainy nights was great having high/low because i would throw it on low to lower where the light was shining. Highs where great on clear nights.

I like the high/low im not sure how much more it costs though

08-04-2009, 06:55 PM
all the high low does is move the bulb in and out abit to change the pattern

Well, I finally did the HID conversion on my 2001 ram. What a difference. I did the 6K kit. single stage so it's low beam only. the kit i bought through a friend is a plug and play kit. No cutting at all. just have to disconnect the daytime running light relay( so I no longer have day time running lights) so you get a full 12 volts to the ballasts. It's a night and day difference. I can tell you that with just the HID low beams on, I can see more than my old hi beams with my factory bumper fog lights on. and I still have the factory fog lights if i ever need them, but i don't see the need anymore. I highly recommend the conversion to anyone thinking about doing it. the kit for my truck was $200 cash. very easy install. hardest part was mounting the ballasts in a safe place, just took a bit of time, thats all.

what about for the rest of us?

I bought mine from lordco's swap meet for $80. I have the same problem with them turning off and on. Would someone be interested in giving me a hand with the proper electrical capacitors or whatever they are ? My stock headlights suck balls !!! Even put aftermarket piaa's in and they still suck ! I have the system installed about 90% just need to figure out the technical end with the small parts. I will gladly fork over frosty beverages or $$$ for some help. Apparently there is a guy (i think its jayson) that works at catalina pools who has made a fix for them. He is selling them and i think it is a plug in and go fix. Dont know how much he is selling them for but i hear they work.

how do you disconnect day time run lights .

09-29-2009, 09:35 PM
on my 2002 ram, theres a mudule with a weather pack plug right below the master cylinder. on the left hand inner fender. Unplug it and tape it up. that will give you full 12 volts to the headlight plugs.
